Despicable Me 3 is finally here!

Mark your calendars and plan to go see Despicable Me 3 on June 30th, 2017. It is the third installment in the Despicable Me film series. The main character, Gru, is a lovable villain who has a great heart.  In the first film, Gru becomes a Dad and learns to love unconditionally. In the second film, he gets married and uses his evil training to do good by joining the AVL (Anti Villain League). In this new Despicable Me installment, Gru is introduced to his twin brother, Dru, which he was separated from at a young age.  Gru is a great character dealing with very real issues including parenting, family and career with a sense of humor.  His approach to dealing with serious villain moments is with a good dance fight. He makes you feel that a good dance fight helps you forget about your troubles.

The movie delivers great messages throughout the film. Sticking together as a family and loving unconditionally is clearly demonstrated in the film. The humor and valuable moments that Gru and his minions experience are unforgettable. The best part is that it will make you laugh and at times surprise you. I think I spit my soda out by accident in one scene.  It is hard not to laugh as Gru does things that are socially unacceptable with adding his touch of love.

His approach to telling the truth is something to be admired.  I call these moments Gru-isims. I suggest you see all of the previous movies before going to see the new installment to better understand the Gru-isims. This lovable villain is honest in a not so honest way. Let me explain what I mean:

1. Gru parenting rules #3 as a new parent he tries to have order in the house by suggesting these things should not happen: “You will not cry, or whine, or laugh or giggle or sneeze or burp or fart. “  
2. Gru tells it like it is at times and it’s funny not insulting. “Hey, Chillax!”
3. When he is doing villain work with his partner Dr. Nefario, instead of complaining he just says, “Why are you so old.”  Which means you did the wrong thing. 
4. When Gru gets great ideas he will say “Lightbulb!” 
5. Honesty is throughout the movie. When Gru speaks his mind, he usually says, “I like it but not a lot. I don’t like it.”
6. Gru has to explain to his kids that he has been fired. His explanation is “We were invited to not work there anymore.” Translation I was fired.  


The entire time you watch the movie your body will be dancing to the movies sound track. The music is just another part of the movie experience that will have you loving this movie.  It is not unusual to want to dance and sing in the theater as you watch the movie. Go ahead and enjoy being a kid again.   Here is a list of the lasts songs you will experience:
